I couldn’t be happier with the training I received from Mirka for Classic Individual Eyelash Extentions. Mirka was so precise with instructions and examples that I was able to pick up the technique easily. She not only made me feel completely confident by the end of the session but also showed me tips, tricks and ways in which I can better my sets/ advice on looks to achieve and the best equipment and lashes to purchase in order to create these. Mirka has multiple methods to try out regarding application, ensuring you find the best one that suits you personally as a technician, in turn, offering the best service to your client. I couldn’t recommend this course enough and the support from Mirka has been outstanding! Thank you Beauty by Mirka!

_Chloe Fletcher

Mirka trained me recently in individual lash extensions. I was a complete novice - never trained in beauty before. She was so accommodating, professional and was quick at always getting back to me. She is also lovely and so encouraging. She really wants you to be the best you can be. Thank you so much Mirka, I am very excited for whats ahead XxX

  • 7 Are lash extensions profitable?

    The lash enhancement industry has been growing steadily in the UK over the past several years. According to IBISWorld reports, the UK eyelash extension services industry was valued at £58 million (2022 data). With continued growth predicted through 2027, the outlook remains positive for the profitability of eyelash extension services in the UK. Profit margins for lash techs and salons in the UK averaged around 60-80% in 2022, thanks in part to the relatively low overheads with providing lash services compared to other salon treatments.

  • 8 How much can a lash technician earn in the UK?

    As a certified lash tech with your own growing clientele, you could easily charge £50-£150+ for a classic lash set that takes 1.5 - 2 hours. That works out to £25-£50+ per hour—or even more as you build speed, expertise and reputation. Even lash infill appointments typically earn technicians £35-£70 for 60-90 minutes of work. That’s around £35-£70+ per hour as you care for your loyal regulars week-to-week. With lash extension services in such high demand, trained technicians can enjoy full appointment books and earn a comfortable income working just 20-30 hours a week. For the flexibility of being your own boss, that earning potential is unmatched.
